Jetlagged in Scotland

We're here in Edinburgh, safe and sound but jetlagged. A grueling trip, three flights, Albuquerque to Houston, Houston to Newark, Newark to Edinburgh. I can't sleep on airplanes, so as usual I arrived exhausted, and collapsed as soon as we hit the hotel. Sleep until midnight, then woke, ate a room service meal, and will soon go back to sleep in hopes to waking tomorrow and getting into sync with the time here.

Glad to see so much enthusiasm about the cast.

Gnight again.

Ooof, long flight(s). I once flew L.A. to Venice, via Amsterdam for a friend's wedding...not fun, not fun at all. At least I had "Clash of Kings" to read on the way and back (it was the first time I read it, actually).

Now if they only can get Peter O'Toole to play Lord Walder Frey, heh!

If your busy schedule permits, visit the British Museum, that is if you haven't before. Or as I like to call it the big building of British war trophies. You won't regret it. As an American archaeologist I found it very humbling.

What a fantastic idea!

Enthusiasm about the cast? Done. Enjoy your time elsewhere, sir. No pressure, but we love your characters more than movie characters. Been with ya since the late 80s with Beauty an th' B. I was 5 at the time... but I was there.

Oooh, I HATE that Newark-Edinburgh flight. Been there, done that. Hope you feel well and rested soon and have fun!

thanks
Well, I've been reading your not-a-blog for longer than I can remember, and decided upon reading this post to finally sign up to livejournal so I could reply to it:
Thanks George.
Thanks for your life consuming literature...My baby steps into fantasy I owe to Lloyd Alexander, but my passion and addiction to the genre, I blame utterly on opening A Game of Thrones at 15.
Now I'd rather refresh the comments page over on Winter-is-Coming to discuss name pronunciations with my fellow addicts than touch my grad school research.

Enjoy the set, watching your mind come to life in front of you, and please pass on to those actors that we are over the wall excited to see them bring A Song of Ice and Fire to HBO's unsuspecting viewers.

ps. Will you give Richard Madden my number? ;)

I can't sleep on flights either. So imagine my flight from Philadelphia to San Francisco to Seoul, South Korea. 17 hours of flying, plus probably about 7 hours of waiting other travel time before I could sleep. 24 hours of being awake! ahhh!!! I feel your pain. And the jet lag just makes it weird for a long time too. Everyone is enthusiastic about the cast and the pilot. How couldn't we be?!

Welcome to Europe
It's a real pity I cannot come there and you've not planned to come back here in Lucca. Anyway, enjoy and drink a pint for your Italian fans.

It's drizzly down in London today but we are forecast some sun in the next few days, hopefully you'll see some of that in Scotland/Ireland too.

I have never been jetlagged and always put it down to not sleeping on planes and going to bed at a normal time for the timezone regardless of how much I have been awake.
